They say charity begins at home. So if you want to do away with old but usable clothes, toys or anything lying idly in a corner of your house don’t give it to waste collectors. Just drop them in any of the charity boxes placed at various places in the city by the Love and Care Foundation. The goods will reach the people who are not able to afford them. Used articles collected from the boxes will be distributed to the deserving by the activists of the foundation.

The scheme was inaugurated by Justice Thottathil B Radhakrishnan on New Year Day. The first box is placed on Master Coaching Board Road opposite Jawaharlal Nehru International stadium, Kaloor.

“Love and Care is just introducing the concept. We expect cooperation from residents associations, clubs, students organisation and service organisations. Any group can join us in this venture, said Sabu Jose, of Love and Care.

Initiated by Sabu and wife Elsy, Love and Care has been active in social service in the city for the past few years.

It developed a silent revolution in charitable activities in the city with thousands of people, including students and judges of the Kerala High Court, sharing a meal at least once a week, with those living on streets. “Though we used to collect and distribute used articles, it was not an organised move.

We can make it big if other organisations in the city join us. Items collected in a box may be distributed to the needy in the same locality by an organisation based there,” Sabu said.
